Boy, if anyone has a good quick way to do this, I’d love to hear it.
Here is the slow, cumbersome way that I did it once. (These instructions are for PCs running Internet Explorer, not Macs. PCs running Netscape Navigator take the same steps, but I don’t remember the names of the folders where Netscape stashes their Bookmarks.)
From AOL, open up your Favorites folder.
Click on the first site you want copied.
Highlight the URL, then press Ctrl + C.
Now, minimize AOL (not the favorites window, but the AOL screen, itself).
Click Open My Computer
Click Open the Windows folder
Click the type Shortcut.
When the next window pops up, put the cursor in the Command Line text area and press Ctrl + V.
(Now comes the big decision: If you can type the “name” you want for the site faster than you can execute the following directions, then just type the name in the Select a name for the Shortcut text area. If you type as slowly as I do then
Click on the AOL-minimized button at the bottom of your screen.
Highlight the “name” in the AOL “Modify” window and press Ctrl + C
Minimize all of AOL, again
Put the cursor in the “Name” text field and press Ctrl + V
Click on the AOL button (maximizing AOL), and click on the next favorite you want to copy, got to the @@@@@ above, rinse, lather, repeat.
(You do not need to minimize the Favorites window while you do this, minimizing/maximizing AOL should be the only screen you need to play with.)
If you have organized your favorites in AOL into separate folders, you can add a step, above, to open a folder within the Favorites folder, then open that folder to place your favorites in.
